When sculptural artist Peter Reiquam and his wife became empty nesters, he designed a modern house with industrial aesthetic. But Reiquam didn’t stop at the front door. For the kitchen, he cleverly readapted a steel buoy as the base of a stunning kitchen work table that actually moves like a wheelbarrow on an oversized wheel. The kitchen work table frame has handles and leg as well as the surface area and weight of the buoy. A piece of butcher block was made to fit on the top, creating a functional work space that blends with the mid-20th century modern tone of the kitchen. With a polished concrete kitchen floor, the piece is easily rolled without worry. Why? Why not?! It’s fun, it’s unique, function and it’s a kitchen island that’s certainly not something you’ll have to worry about the neighbors having or copying.
